      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Recipe's preparation

    Turkey burgers
  1. Dice turkey breasts. Place into TM bowl and mince for 10 seconds/Speed 6. Set aside.
    Add zucchini, spring onions and garlic to TM bowl and chop for 15 seconds/Speed 7.
    Scrape down bowl and ensure zucchini is coarsely chopped, chop again if necessary. Add to mince bowl.
    Add fresh mint and coriander to the TM bowl. Chop for 3 sec/Speed 7.
    Add meat and zucchini mixture back to bowl, along with egg, cumin, salt, black pepper and cayenne pepper. Mix Reverse/3 Min/Speed 1 or until combined.
    Shape into small burgers (wet your hands under cold water, it will help!), making about 16. Refrigerate for about 10 minutes.

    Preheat oven to 220C.
    Heat some oil in a large frypan and sear the meatballs in batches over a medium heat on all sides.
    Cook them for about 4 minutes, adding oil as needed, until golden brown.
    Carefully transfer the seared meatballs into an oven tray and place in the oven for 5-7 minutes, or until just cooked through.
    Serve warm or at room temperature, with the sauce spooned over on the side.
  2. Sour cream and sumac sauce
  3. To make the sauce, place all ingredients into a small bowl and stir well until combined.
    Set aside or chill until needed.

This is an amazing recipe. I usually make it with the Baby spinach salad with dates and almonds - click link to see recipe in my blog. It is just an unbelievable combination of flavours. Love it! From the cookbook 'Jerusalem'.

    Thank you! I bought minced turkey for the recipe. Patties were delicious with the Sumac sauce. we made the recommended spinach salad with the dates and slivered almonds, but omitted the butter and pita. Yummm. Also included roast pumkin to round out the plate.
